Abstract

The aim of this study was to evaluate the operations performed for pancreatic cancer nationwide in Italy during the period 2010–2012. A possible variability of treatment depending on the hospital volume was investigated, since the volume–outcome relationship in pancreatic surgery is well established. An estimate of the clinical and economic consequences of potentially incorrect surgery was performed.
